Mango Man

with a quirky habit of staggering

I had the privilege of scooping the watermark sheets at Florian Kohler's Gmund Paper Manufactory on Lake Tegern - soundproof - from beech pulp. Mango peels sewn onto the scooping screen became the mango man. When Frans Mon saw the openwork leaves, he only wanted twenty percent attention for his sentences.
